Surf-Rodz INDeesz Trucks

Here they are

These are the trucks that will be going on every board we create in the Longboard course...now image them in Marauder Red!


Hanover High March Intensive Course

We are back for 2011!   The original crew, with some NEW additions, are coming together again to bring you an amazing opportunity to construct your own ride! 

Just like last year this course is designed to bring together Hanover High students with a common interest in exploring the design, product and lifestyle of longboarding in a hands-on workshop. Participants will design and handcraft a longboard around the goal of replacing as many environmentally harmful materials as possible, with functional, ecologically based alternatives using wood from local New England forest.   We have tricked out the course for this year with some new additions.  First, and this is HUGE, we will be using Surf-Rodz INDeesz trucks (INDeeSZ), bushings and bearings on all of our boards.  Second, BOHO boards will be working with us to create glue-ups that we will cut our board designs from.  Third, everyone will have a chance to design their own silk screen graphic for their board.  Things that are NOT changing: everyone will receive a helmet from the "Helmet-in-Hands" program, a years subscription to Concrete Wave and the famous schwag box with stickers and original course t-shirt.

Course Dates: March 22-25th, 2011

**Course is only open to Hanover High Students

I will be dropping more information about the course and what to expect in the coming months here and on the course web site



It's that Holiday Season!  Around the world, we're starting to prepare for a variety of holidays, most of which involve an exhange of gifts among friends, family and the longboarders in your crew.  Every season, Silverfish Longboarding puts together a list of ideas, special deals and other such gear that should be a good fit for almost any longboard skater, enabling you to spread the Yuletide stoke...or to send your friends here with a hint or two...

Concrete Wave Goes 100% Longboarding

Just wanted to share this interesting letter from Michael Brooke...

What goes around, comes around, eh? The genesis of Concrete Wave mag was another, “Int’l Longboarder”. It had a good run before it evolved into Concrete Wave in order to serve and cover “all of skateboarding”. Well, Papa Darwin and Skategeezer have conferred yet again, and here’s news about our beloved ‘wave, fresh from publisher, Michael Brooke…

Concrete Wave goes Longboard!

Toronto. Over the past several months, I have had a number of conversations with readers, advertisers, supporters and yes, even former readers. It has become increasingly clear to me that it is time to pour nitroglycerin on the fires that are burning out there within the world of longboarding. Things are burning brightly and now is the time to focus that intensity.
